Just in time for Valentine’s Day, it’s True Love with a Twist, our new series of films and discussions led by Brooks Appelbaum and Dennis Bell. Please join us for the first film in this series: Truly, Madly, Deeply.
Pianist Nina (Juliet Stevenson) and cellist Jamie (Alan Rickman) played together and loved together. When they weren’t making music with each other, they made love. It was an idyllic romantic and musical partnership, and when Jamie dies, Nina takes it very hard. One day, while plunking dejectedly on the piano, Nina looks up to discover Jamie, in ghostly form, lively as ever and just as loving. Soon Nina will have to choose between her ghostly romance or a real life relationship. ~ Rotten Tomatoes Review
